Crowder got an MRI on his ankle on Saturday after hurting it during the Celtics’ 102-98 loss to the Houston Rockets on Friday. Crowder appeared to suffer the injury in the third quarter during a transition layup.

“I was on a fast break, and I came down in an awkward way,’’ Crowder said Friday following the game, via ESPN.com. “I got up, and I didn’t feel good. Come to find out I just sprained it.’’
